Lehigh Valley Industrial Park’s new green office building marks the gateway to the non-profit organization’s LVIP VII development, and is located on the 1,000-acre site that once housed Bethlehem Steel. SFA worked with the owner to create a sustainable building that would provide Class-A office space.

The building incorporates numerous environmentally friendly design concepts and features. It is oriented to take advantage of natural daylight but to minimize heat gain and solar glare. To improve energy efficiency and occupants’ comfort, sun shades on the south façade and high-performance windows, walls, and roof were included. Energy-saving lighting and water-saving fixtures are also incorporated in the facility. More than 20 percent of the building materials are made from recycled content and more than 30 percent of materials were manufactured within 500 miles of the site. The LVIP Office Building is home to Spillman Farmer Architects’ own LEED CI Gold-Certified office space.

Testimonial

Name Jim Petrucci

Title President, J.G. Petrucci

Today as I drove up 412, it really struck me just how perfectly you nailed the design of this building. It more than fits the space, it really defines the entry into the Park. It’s important to me as an investor there, but more importantly given that it is a true gateway (to not just the Park by the City). I want to congratulate you on a job exceedingly well done.
